londondude 's Thoughts:

Hey there, fellow Chictopians!

How are you guys doing? Hoping you have all had a fab weekend – whether its been totally lazy, or dashing around like someone on the first day of the January sales…!

What have I been upto? Well, I have just got back from a short weekend break, visiting some friends by the seaside and seeing a wonderful air show. In particular – an amazing display performed by the world renowned RAF Red Arrows!

These very gifted guys, and women – a female pilot was among them ; ) were doing things in these jet planes which really did make my jaw drop! You know when you watch something, and that something is incredibly dangerous, its very mesmerizing! All the acts which followed really didn’t match the levels of excitement that they generated, so me and my girlfriend upped and left and decided to take some photos.

About my outfit, I brought this hat a while ago, I liked it for the nice colour and that fifies look – made more funky IMO, by the addition of some colourful feathers. So it gives a kind of hunting apparel vibe. Maybe that isn’t quite right as it is for the beach, so I chose a pastel pink shirt and combined it with a more vibrant pink silk handkerchief which was bunched into my blazer pocket! Overall, with the jeans and of course – the sunglasses, I think I achieved the look I was aiming for… Of course, the real decider on that rests with you guys… in the ‘chic vote’ factor challenge ; )

Now, it was rather sunny at times so I apologise for the glare which, thanks to Photoshop I have managed to reduce quite considerably. And an honourable mention to the great British weather, which meant that the nice blue skies soon filled up with rather menacing dark clouds. Which in turn then began to emit this rather nasty substance called rain…

…This unfortunate event curtailed the enjoyable time spent outside, and what else is one to do when this happens? Well, we hit the Pub….. Followed by a very tasty fish supper. The lemon sole was very yummy: )

I am somewhat tired posting this, and coffee has helped up to this point, but I feel its magic caffiene powers are waning, so I will leave it on this note. I hope you enjoyed my post and as always – appreciate your comments!

Kind Regards

I love that pop of pink in your pocket:) neat, stylish, and I would definitely dress my hubby like this (he would kill me for the pink I think:)))joke:)
Elekon_Chic_Boutique on August 16
I do agree with you!
londondude on August 16
I think pink is very masculine. The colour is very strong and bright, and I think guys should be opting to go for it more often than they do. To say that one colour is not for a gender is rather limiting - IMO. But at the end of the day, always stick with what you feel most comfortable with, although I do recommend stepping out of that comfort zone from time to time... thanks for your comments. I appreciate them as always
